Get into the festive spirit with traditional live music sessions for under-fives and their adults at the National Museum of Rural Life.

Traditional Tunes for Tiny People sessions will take place during our Festive Weekend event. Available as an add-on to your museum admission ticket, these fun, interactive sessions have been designed specifically for little ones and their grown-ups.

Join traditional musicians Mairi McGillivray (voice and fiddle) and Katie Allen (guitar and fiddle) from Live Music Now Scotland for songs and stories celebrating Gaelic, Scots and other traditional styles.

A woman playing a guitar faces a small child who is touching the guitar. They're sitting on a colourful quilt.


Tickets to Traditional Tunes for Tiny People are available as an add-on to your museum admission ticket during Festive Weekend on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December.

Traditional Tunes for Tiny People add-on prices are:

One adult and one child under 5 £5

One additional child under 5 £3

  • Adapted toilets are available, including baby changing and an adult changing bench.

  • Paths leading to the farm buildings provide firm smooth surfaces for pushchairs and wheelchairs. However, the distance is approximately half a mile and in places, the path is relatively steep. Seating is provided at regular intervals. A tractor and trailer, the Farm Explorer, is provided for this purpose and is suitable for wheelchair users. This service is free of charge and runs regularly throughout the day.
  • The ground floor, but not the first floor, of the farmhouse is accessible by wheelchair.
  • Guide dogs, hearing dogs and other recognised assistance dogs are admitted.
